What does pH mean, and how does it affect my water?

pH is a measurement of the acidity of your water. The lower the pH, the more acidic your water; the higher, the more alkaline.

The pH of water should be 7 to be neutral. Usually it will be more than 7 indicating that it is slightly alkaline. If the pH is lower it indicates that the water is acidic in nature. The pH of water is altered due to many factors like acidic rain, soil runoff, mineral leaching, and decomposing.

Very acidic water can cause corrosion in pipes and many water treatment systems need a pH level that is in the normal range in order to have maximum effectiveness.

We can treat pH imbalances with either a neutralizer or an additive pump, depending on the need.
